A while ago, many Mahindra dealers across India stopped taking bookings for the automatic gearbox equipped Scorpio SUV. The pause in bookings reflected the trouble that Mahindra was facing when it came to sourcing the automatic gearbox from Drivetrain Systems International(DSI) Australia, an transmission maker from whom Mahindra used to source the 6 speed automatic gearbox for the Scorpio Automatic. DSI has now been acquired by Geely, a Chinese automaker. Mahindra, for its part, has turned to German auto parts giant Bosch, for sourcing an automatic transmission for the Scorpio.

With the 6 speed automatic transmission’s sourcing from Bosch secured, the Scorpio Automatic once again becomes the only affordable automatic SUV to be sold in India. The Mahindra Scorpio SUV, in automatic guise, comes in two wheel drive and four wheel drive guises.

The two wheel drive model of the Scorpio Automatic is priced at 11.47 lakh rupees while the four wheel drive version of the Scorpio Automatic is priced at 12.5 lakh rupees, both prices reflecting ex-showroom Delhi figures. The engine of the Scorpio is a 2.2 Liter mHawk turbo diesel motor that outputs a peak power of 120 Bhp while peak torque is rated at 290 Nm. The Scorpio Automatic is available in VLX trim, a fully loaded trim level of this SUV.
